We arrived yesterday just after 6:00pm at the Bunkhouse Inn, which we had all to ourselves for this first night. We had a huge pizza dinner (and a couple of local beers) at the Lazy B Bar and Cafe, and had an enjoyable conversation with a fellow Ohioan who just happens to have recently moved from Ohio after purchasing the bar. A bold adventure. Afterwards, we retired to our nighttime abode, content in our food coma, and slept the sleep of a long distance hiker.

This morning, after breakfast, we started on town chores. We had to dry out all of our gear, Two Step worked on arrangements for our resupply stops (we are now locked into a schedule for the rest of the trip - yikes - not something most CDT hikers do...), and I repaired our shoes with Shoe Goop, hoping for at least 120 more miles out of them and hopefully 200+ to trails end. There was even time for an afternoon stroll through the town, a stop at the ice cream shop, and time to read and post journals in the hotel lobby.

The days are just packed...
